Thanksgiving night I was brought via ambulance with severe abdominal pain and passing out. I had a ruptured ectopic pregnancy. I had emergency surgery and my left fallopian tube was removed. Lost 2L of blood. Lucky to be alive, but sad to have a second pregnancy loss this year, and a loss of my fallopian tube. I hope all goes well for everyone else.

I am so sorry Turtlewomyn, that sounds very scary in addition to being very sad.
I have had 2 losses this year but fortunately they were uncomplicated.

My thoughts are with you and your babe.
